G'day Canberra sports fans,
For months Canberra Stadium has been empty, the concourses devoid of fans in Canberra Raiders or ACT Brumbies jerseys desperately cheering their team on.
That all changes this week. The Raiders bring the NRL back to the capital on Friday night - and they want to "improve drastically" if they are going to reignite their season.
While you can say all you want about their struggle to find cohesion in attack or their leaky right edge, one thing you can never doubt is Corey Horsburgh's passion.
Then come Saturday, it's the Brumbies' turn in a brand new Super Rugby AU competition in which they are red hot favourites. Tickets are scarce, will you be there for the footy's return?
